NAME

Data::Format::Pretty - Pretty-print data structure

VERSION

version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

In your program:

 use Data::Format::Pretty qw(format_pretty print_pretty);

 # automatically choose an appropriate formatter
 print format_pretty($data);

 # explicitly select a formatter
 print format_pretty($data, {module=>'JSON'});

 # specify formatter option(s)
 print format_pretty($data, {module=>'Console', interactive=>1});

 # shortcut for printing to output
 print_pretty($data);


 # ppr() is alias for print_pretty(), exported automatically. suitable for when
 # debugging.
 use Data::Format::Pretty;
 ppr [1, 2, 3];

DESCRIPTION

Data::Format::Pretty is an extremely simple framework for pretty-printing data structure. Its focus is on "prettiness" and automatic detection of appropriate format to use.

To develop a formatter, look at one of the formatter modules (like Data::Format::Pretty::JSON) for example. You only need to specify one function, format_pretty.

FUNCTIONS

format_pretty($data, \%opts) => STR

Send $data to formatter module (one of Data::Format::Pretty::* modules) and return the result. Options:

  • module => STR

    Select the formatter module. It will be prefixed with "Data::Format::Pretty::".

    Currently if unspecified the default is 'Console', or 'HTML' if CGI/PSGI/plackup environment is detected. In the future, more sophisticated detection logic will be used.

The rest of the options will be passed to the formatter module.

Just call format_pretty() and print() it.

ppr($data, \%opts) [EXPORTED BY DEFAULT]

Alias for print_pretty().

SEE ALSO

One of Data::Format::Pretty::* formatter, like Data::Format::Pretty::Console, Data::Format::Pretty::HTML, Data::Format::Pretty::JSON, Data::Format::Pretty::YAML.

Alternative data formatting framework/module family: Any::Renderer.
